Suspects in trafficking case deny knowledge of drugs

(Gillette, Wyo.) An update to our story from earlier this week : According to court records, the three men arrested with over 90 pounds of marijuana barely knew one another, and did not know the man in Seattle who asked them to take three bags by bus to New Jersey. They were told the contents of the luggage were "a secret," according to one suspect. Only one of the three men spoke any English and there were language barrier problems interviewing them because of this. Still, they denied knowing what was in the luggage or who was supposed to be retrieving it from them at the other end of the country. The three appear to originally be from the New Jersey area, and it's unclear why they went to Seattle in the first place. The suspects appeared in Circuit Court on Thursday and are being held in Campbell County Detention on $20,000 bond each. Their charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance could bring a $10,000 fine or 10 years in prison, if the court decides there's enough evidence against them to prosecute. #county17 #news
